Welcome Cal-JAC Academy, Class 18-1!
In January of 2018, a class of more than 50 dedicated individuals took their first steps toward a career in the fire service.
These cadets, who make up the inaugural class of the Cal-JAC Academy, were selected from a pool of more than 200 applicants to participate in California’s first fire-service, pre-apprenticeship program.
Over the course of the academy, these cadets will be taken through the entry-level steps needed to launch a career as a firefighter, including the entry-level physical and written testing requirements and completion of a nationally registered Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) course.
Should they complete this rigorous and comprehensive pathway into the fire service, they’ll earn a guaranteed oral interview with the Sacramento Fire Department, as well as placement on the Firefighter Candidate Testing Center’s Statewide Eligibility List, which is used by more than 75 California fire departments when it comes time to hire.
